4KCBWDAY4 Colour Review

This is our brief for today:

4KCBWDAY4 Colour Review: What are your favourite colours for knitted or crocheted projects. Have a think about what colours you seem to favour when yarn shopping and crafting.

Only after writing this part of your post should you then actually look to see what colours you have used in your projects. Make a quick tally of what colours you have used in your projects over the past year and compare it to the colours you have written about. Compare this, in turn, to the colours that are most dominant in your yarn stash – do they correlate?

Now think back to your house animal – do the colours you have chosen relate to your animal in anyway – if you are in the house of peacock, for example, are your projects often multicoloured and bright?

I am drawn to pink, I know this sounds obvious as I have pink hair but I also struggle to say that it is my favourite colour. I love blues, greens, purples, oranges, grey, neutral etc too I think there is a trend here. As much as I find that I flit from project to project so I don’t get bored, I think the same is true of colour. I need a variety.

Looking at my projects I have ( not all of which are on Ravelry – I realized i need to add a whole lot of missing projects)

10 pink
2 red
5 brown
8 grey
5 muticolour ( mostly toys)
12 blue
4 yellow

Now to my stash
I am very proud that my stash all fits in this one box and yet I still feel overwhelmed that I will not get to knit it all. I want to knit it all as I got most for a very specific reason, other were given to me and I love knitting with gifted yarn it has a warmth from the giver than creeps in and makes you happy.

You can’t see the colours too well but I was not taking them all out of their individual plastic packets. I think my stash represents what I said about colour. While there is a lot of pink there are a lot of other colours too. I like colour

  1. I love your stash! The size and the colors. I’m working on getting mine down to your size and think I’m almost there. I get really overwhelmed and kind of claustrophobic when I have too much yarn sitting around…and my sense of ‘too much’ is nothing compared to some others that I’ve seen…like walls top to bottom and side to side covered with yarn. Yikes! Back to your colors…they’re gorgeous and remind me of spring, a garden of beautiful flowers, and the ocean at sunset. 🙂

  2. OOOOOHHHHH look at all that “What a girl wants” – swoon….

    I love this post and your stash is so well organised, can you come and do mine too please? x

    • Clare it is not really all that organised. It is just all in bags. I am a bit fanatical about keeping it safe. The box is to limit the amount. It has to fit in one box
